Welcome to Lettsom Gardens

A community garden in the heart of Camberwell

Lettsom Gardens is a community garden in Camberwell, London SE5. It is bordered by Grove Park to the north and Grove Hill Road to the south. All local people are warmly welcomed to become members if they would like to. The gardens are especially enjoyed by people who live in flats and don’t have gardens of their own. The gardens are run by a charity, Lettsom Gardens Association, and access is with a key and an annual membership.

The space is divided between woodland, allotments and a tarmac sports pitch. Between the three of them they create a well used community utility. A small area of grass hosts many a picnic after school in the summer, and there is also a large wooden swing.

The allotments on the site are managed by a separate organisation: see Lettsom Allotments Association for details.

The gardens have one major open day during the year which is a a bonfire night on the nearest weekend to November the 5th. It is a well attended local event.

Please take time to look over the rules for the gardens and should you wish to join up follow the instructions in the Membership section of this site.

Welcome again to Lettsom Gardens, and we hope you love the gardens as much as we do. With all good wishes, The LGA Trustees
